New Year camp a hit with 4WD club members

Members of the Bundaberg 4WD Club headed to their club’s campsite on the banks of the Kolan River for a 2021 New Year Campout.

The end of what has been a disjointed year in the ability to get out and about in the great outdoors was celebrated.

The club’s campsite has seen the edition of a new rainwater tank and an instant hot water system installed to keep in line with our COVID Safe plan and make camping just a little more civilised.

We also had the opportunity during the 2021 New Year Campout to christen our new kayaks that were made possible via the COVID Safe Active Clubs Kickstart grant from the Queensland Government.

The funding was put towards two twin seat kayaks and life jackets that we purchased from Koastal Kayaks, a local Bundaberg business.

Kayaks fitted the requirements of the grant by helping us buy equipment to help deliver quality physical activity experiences.

Yes, we do more than just sit in our vehicles and drive around!

The start of a new year has plenty of activities planned with our trip calendar starting to fill up with plenty of activities to keep us out of the house.
